A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ilyasu Musa Kwankwaso, has reacted to the Appeal Court judgement thatthe Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf.
In a statement on Friday, Kwankwaso called on Governor Yusuf to honourably accept defeat handed over by the Appeal Court in Abuja and not head to the Supreme Court.
Kwankwaso said Yusuf should have accepted the ruling of the governorship election tribunal in good faith instead of wasting the state’s meagre resources at the Appeal Court.
He, therefore, called on Yusuf to settle down and get ready to re-contest in 2027 under a viable political party and not the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
The former Commissioner described the affirmation of the APC governorship candidate, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, as governor-elect as a triumph of democracy and the rule of law.
He said, “It would be another mission impossible for him to drag the case to the Supreme Court, going by the available evidence that nailed him at both the Tribunal and the Appeal Court. Hence, there is need for him to go and rest until 2027.
“Gov. Yusuf should have read the handwriting on the wall, analyzed the various pieces of evidence used by the Tribunal to sack him, adding that those pieces of evidence are convincing, and it would be very difficult for the court to neglect in ruling.
“As a brother, I am using this medium to advise him to shelve any move to drag his defeat to the Supreme Court but should just know that this is not the time for him to be the governor of the state.
“If he is ready to pitch a tent with the ruling party, APC, the door is open for him, so that he would come for proper learning of democracy. The APC would groom him for any available future political appointment.”
Kwankwaso called on Gawuna and the deputy governor-elect, Alhaji Sule Garo, to be prepared on how to govern the state.
He added that the teeming masses of the state were convinced that both were tested and trusted personalities, and they believed they would not waste much time rewriting the wrongs presently committed by the sacked governor.
